Hey guys,

I know the sunfire passive doesnt tack on one champion, but what if two chamions build them? Will the auras stack?

So say that Renekton brings one, Amumu another and a teamfight commence. Only one of them will actually deal damage?

it only stacks if you have one, so the effect from YOUR aegis is considered item effect, and you receive the aura from the 2nd one.
The buffs would read (Aegis of the Legion - Aegis of the Legion Aura).

Aegis stacks?

The thing with Aegis is that it has both a normal effect and an aura. The normal effect stacks, the passive doesn't.

If you build an aura item which grants this aura to your team and another member of your team builds it too, you would have the aura twice, the other guy who built the item would have it twice, but every other member of your team would get it only once.

I hope this clarifies everything a little bit...

Sounds about right
I'll just clarify it a bit more, trying to visualize it
5 players in 1 team. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
1 and 2 have an Aegis.
1 and 2 have two buffs, 3, 4 and 5 have only one.

2 Sunfire capes in a teamfight is still useful. Just because 2 champs have it, doesn't mean they are at the exact same spot.

This regarding Aegis.

If it goes with your build, yes. Sunfire Cape is still a great item, specially for Melee champs, since it provides the so much needed survivability plus some extra damage.

have any of you TESTED whether or not sunfires stack on diff team mates. cause you seem to be saying a lot of stuff that doesnt make sense. sunfire capes are not auras. they are a unique passive.


such is not the case. the cape has a DPS effect in an area around the champ holding it. i am 99% sure a DPS effect like that wouldnt be restricted to 1 per team. it is a unique, so you cannot stack the DPS on the same champion.

going in game to check now

Edit: just checked in game to be certain.
sunfire capes on 2 different champions on the same team both do damage. They DO NOT stack on 1 champion. but if you and an ally both get sunfires, they will both do damage to a single enemy in range.

please do not post incorrect information as if it is fact.

On a semi-related note, if you're playing Mordekaiser and you don't have enough health to cast a spell, you cast the spell and go down to 1 HP instead of dying or not casting the spell ;)

Since the Sunfire's passive is just a point-null AoE damage spell, it has nothing to do with aura stacking. It's like a constant version of Burning Agony's damage component.

As for Aegis of the Legion stacking, if two champions in the same team purchase it they will get the auras twice (wielder and receiver), anyone else will only receive it once.

Ninja moderation striking.

As 1ronlung said, don't pretend to know something if you didn't test. I double tested it to be sure and it does work!
